, it's bigger than russia. i am confident that we will defeat germany to $4 trillion. 16 million people work in it. seven out of the 10 smartest kids in the high school graduating class work and our health care system somewhere. so when people in washington bravely talk about reforming the health care system, the degrees of difficulty or its magnitude, this is way harder than iraq. is like invading a country the size of germany, and i think that's a little bit what is happening now. the main feature of this health economy for most of the last five years has been disinflation. frankly, something no one, including the futurists predicted, in 2009 our health system arrived at a rate of increase in health spending that we haven't seen in this country since dwight eisenhower was president of the united states. five years before medicare, and we stayed at that level of maybe 3.8, 3.9% increase in spending for five long years. the economists who believe this was a product of the recession will have trouble explaining why per capita medicare spending has trended down towards zero during

. >> russia. so much propaganda. usell of these governments the same dreary argument -- national security. they all say they are making their people safer. they say the people telling the other side art -- are traitors. you have to get into a basic idea from the founders and i know they were flawed. my wife will tell me on the way home. the fact is they were an incredible group of people. what was incredible about them is they knew basic truths. you cannot have an empire and a republic in the same moment. that is key. the whole idea of limited government is if you're going to conquer the world and you're going to have power, you are going to lie. and you're going to engage, messing around the people's lives, you will become responsible and you will have to torture. so the way you do that is to have the notion of limited government, restraint, the right of the individual. that is why define the opposition to this thing is not liberal or conservative or democrat or republican. i don't know. snowden is a libertarian. what i see in snowden and the people on the panel are unique individuals in
